Resource Spotlight


This month we are featuring a series called, That the World May Know. Renowned teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan takes the viewer on location in the Middle East and elsewhere to illuminate the historical, geographical, and cultural context of the sacred Scriptures. This series will transform your understanding of God and challenge you to be a true follower of Jesus.

There are fifteen lessons in this series. View full descriptions of each study in our online catalog. Search “Faith Lessons” under title to see each different study. The titles are: Promised Land, Prophets and Kings, Life & Ministry of the Messiah, Death & Resurrection of the Messiah, Early Church, In the Dust of the Rabbi, Walk as Jesus Walked, God Heard Their Cry, Fire on the Mountain, With All Your Heart, The Path to the Cross, Walking with God in the Desert, Israel’s Mission, The Mission of Jesus, A Clash of Kingdoms.


Also featured this month is the unique Deeper Connection series. Unlike any other Bible study available, this visually stunning DVD series is written and taught by biblical experts – six professors with specialized areas of knowledge. Don’t let the word “deeper” scare you. These engaging and accessible studies are for everyone who wants to deepen their understanding of God’s Word and apply it more faithfully and effectively.

Hosted by Jarrett Stevens, each session is introduced from Israel. Sessions are filmed in locations as diverse as the Rocky Mountains, Gloucester Harbor, the California coast, Boston’s Old North Church, and Chicago’s lakefront. Each volume consists of six fascinating sessions. Each session is taught by a different teacher and consists of three components: Historical and cultural background; An engaging, close look at the biblical text and its meaning; Accurate, encouraging, and challenging applications of the Bible’s message to life today.

Deeper Connections titles available in Discovery Place are: The Last Days of Jesus, The Life of Jesus, The Forgiveness of Jesus, The Prayers of Jesus, The Miracles of Jesus, and The Parables of Jesus. Full descriptions of these can also be viewed in our online catalog.
